Happy Friday evening to everyone! Work has been pretty good this week, and today was a great day off. I’m getting in some nice long walks with Noah, and had a challenging circuit training session with Vicky at the gym. I lapsed into a little of that negative thought pattern this morning–“what’s the use of running, hard workouts, waiting til I’m hungry to eat? I’m still the same size. I’m never going to lose any more.” And then I remembered that the ‘use’ is that I am doing what needs to be done just to maintain my current weight. That’s the use. Oh. Okay.
Regarding my trial of Intuitive Eating, I’m doing pretty good. Weight seems to be staying the same. I am definitely not in a ‘losing weight’ mindset this week. Just enjoying the good food a little too much! Good food, as in lots of fresh fruit, veggies, Vicky’s concoctions, fresh dairy, walnuts, oatmeal, scones, protein pancakes…the usual suspects. Tonight I made a new version of something I’ve tried before. It came out so good I wrote it down this time–Fried Rice. It came about because of some new products I got at Costco. Organic Brown Rice bowls–90 seconds in the microwave, 2 servings per bowl. And, BTW, only 5mg sodium per serving. The beauty of a recipe like this is that you can vary it a lot of different ways, depending on what you have on hand, and/or what kind of veggies you like. I really like the texture of the carrots and zucchini that have been grated on the mandolin. Combines really well with the rice. I didn’t take a picture–sorry about that.
I do have some gorgeous pictures to share with you, though. More garden shots. I’m enjoying my new camera.
